A long time between writings!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Wednesday October 02, 2013   -   By Ann

  It's been a very long time since I've written in here!  A lot has happened in that time.  New neighbors, changes on the farm, and weird weather, to name a few.   I have new neighbors all around the mountain.  Luckily they are all...

June Already!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Saturday June 09, 2012   -   By Ann

It's been a long time since I wrote in here!  A lot has happened.  Kidding season this year was the most challenging one I've ever had.  I lost two does and four kids.  But, there are 26 live and healthy kids out there, growing fast...

Winter is here, and came with a bang!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Saturday November 26, 2011   -   By Ann

    Winter is here, and it sure came in fast!  We got 16 inches of snow in about 12 hours.  Spent two days digging out, then got 9 more inches!  Thank heavens most of it melted this last week, down to 5 inches.  Friday...

Cashmere everywhere!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Tuesday May 24, 2011   -   By Ann

The cashmere I'm dehairing is starting to take over the house! Pretty soon I'll be asking my husband what he'd like for dinner with his cashmere. :-) I am really going to build a "real" dehairing room next year for sure. There will be lots of room for...

Happy New Year!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Monday January 03, 2011   -   By Ann

Well, it's hard to believe 2011 is here already.  2010 went by in the blink of an eye, it seems.  Lots of things happened last year.  Not the least, me getting my dream come true, a cashmere dehairing machine!   I am out there almost...

End of the Year already!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Thursday December 16, 2010   -   By Ann

It's hard to believe it's almost Christmas already!  This year has gone by so fast.  I'm busy dehairing cashmere now.  I've been doing this for two months now.  It is literally the slowest process on the planet, but I am thoroughly enjoying...

My Dream Come True!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Saturday October 16, 2010   -   By Ann

My dream has come true after 9 years!  I have my own cashmere dehairing machine!!!  Now I can process mine and other people's cashmere into cloud ready to spin, or process further at another mill.  This has been a dream of mine ever...

An interesting week-end

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Monday August 09, 2010   -   By Ann

  I had an interesting week-end up at the Eureka!  Fiber Festival in Eureka, MT.  They have a nice, relaxed, laid-back atmosphere up there, and it is a fun festival to go to.  There are classes on most things fiber related.  Vendors to...

It's still raining!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Monday June 21, 2010   -   By Ann

It is still raining.  We did have two nice days over the week-end, especially Saturday.  The Farmers' Market went well.  I sold a couple of cashmere scarves, goat milk soap, and met some interesting people.  Lots of people were...

More rain

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Wednesday June 16, 2010   -   By Ann

It just keeps on raining.  We have an inch now, and it's still coming down.  It let up for a couple of hours this afternoon, so I let the goats out for a while.     Since I was inside, I did some spinning, crocheting and cheese...

Rain, rain and more rain

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Monday May 31, 2010   -   By Ann

  It has been raining since Wednesday.  We now have a little over 3 inches, and it's still lightly raining off and on.  This should make the grass start growing, if it warms up, that is!     My tulips are still blooming and...

Kids are fun!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Tuesday April 27, 2010   -   By Ann

  All the kids are doing fine.  The 14 cashmere kids are always getting into mischief.  The 4 dairy kids are trying to, but they don't climb through the fence like the cashmeres do, so they can't get into much.    I am getting...

More Babies

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Thursday April 15, 2010   -   By Ann

We got 10 inches of snow on Tuesday!!  There were three kids born that day, too.  Yesterday there were two more born.  All are doing fine.  The snow has pretty much melted away again.  The main goat pen is a swamp with all the water in...

  Well, Dottie's kids finally arrived on Friday the 9th, at 11 am and 11:40 am.  Two huge boys!  Rusty throws some big stout kids!  Mom and kids are doing fine.  Now the boy/girl ratio is skewed towards the boys again.  Out of...

Wow, time goes by fast!  It's April already and the kids are popping out left and right.  There are seven so far, five cashmere and two dairy.  They are so cute!!!  It makes me happy watching them bouncing around without a care in the...

Easy Winter...So Far

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Saturday February 20, 2010   -   By Ann

I haven't posted here in a long time!  We are having a pretty easy winter this year.  Not much in the way of snow, only about a foot, if that.  It's been above average temps for quite a while.  I am liking the lack of snow, it makes it much...
